The Jets had more distractions last season than any other team in the NFL. Their "circus" was a result of unrealistic expectations and unneeded distractions from the media and fans. Tim Tebow didn't help matters any. In an interview with Fox Sports Radio's Petros and Money show, Mark Sanchez took what is perhaps a parting shot at Tim Tebow. While Tebow remains with the team at the moment, it seems very unlikely the Jets would keep him on their roster for another season. "I just don’t know if it was the best situation for either of us, but you play with the cards you are dealt with and do the very best you can," Sanchez said in regard to the media's coverage of Tim Tebow [via the New York Daily News]. "Well, I think part of that, too, is ESPN didn’t necessarily sneak in overnight at our training camp. They had to get permission to go. You can avoid that stuff on your own if you like, in my opinion, but he’s a popular guy and people gravitate towards the guy." "He’s a special person and a heck of a competitor, so people want to know what’s going on, but that’s all I got on that." In other words, the Jets should have avoided bringing Tim Tebow into the fold in the first place. While everyone is aware that Tim Tebow is a good guy, he's a distraction that, for my money, should be avoided by every single team in the NFL. He just brings too much media hype for the production. He's just not worth it, and the Jets figured that out the hard way. [follow]
